Red Sox's Matt Barnes: Loses control on the road
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes walked six batters over 2.1 innings on Boston's recently completed road trip, throwing strikes on just 31 of 69 pitches.

A mediocre trip went bad Wednesday when Barnes walked both batters he faced on 10 pitches, setting off what was Boston's first bullpen meltdown of the season. Overall, Barnes and the rest of the pen have been pretty good -- the Red Sox were 27-0 in games they led after seven innings. He'll remain the eighth inning reliever for now, but not if he continues to throw a mere 45 percent of pitches for strikes.

Red Sox's Matt Barnes: Picks up fifth relief win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes (5-2) allowed three hits and struck out five over two scoreless innings in Monday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Phillies.

It initially didn't look like Barnes would pick up a career-high fifth win when the Phils had runners on second and third with one out in the 10th inning, but the right-hander avoided damage by striking out the final two batters. He later worked around a leadoff single in the 11th. With Carson Smith (elbow) working his way back from Tommy John surgery, there's thought that he could provide some high-leverage work, but until that time, Barnes is manager John Farrell's go-to guy in tense situations.

Red Sox's Matt Barnes: Returns Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes returned from a personal leave and threw a scoreless ninth inning in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Orioles. He allowed one hit and struck out the final batter.

Barnes, who had been away from the team Friday and Saturday while tending to a family matter, was the team's de facto closer Sunday with Craig Kimbrel unavailable after throwing a season-high 33 pitches Saturday. He was in position for a save opportunity, but the Red Sox pushed across a run in the top of the ninth, making it a four-run lead and negating the chance for a save.

Red Sox's Matt Barnes: Expected back Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes (personal) is expected to be back with Boston for Sunday's series finale against the Orioles, Chad Jennings of the Boston Herald reports.

Barnes had been away from the team, missing games Friday and Saturday while attending to a family matter. While he's been away, Joe Kelly has replaced him as the designated setup man.

Red Sox's Matt Barnes: Unavailable due to personal issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes was unavailable out of the bullpen Friday and will likely miss Saturday's game while attending to a family matter, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

The Red Sox will miss Barnes, who has been one of the most consistent arms out of the bullpen this season and has allowed just three earned runs over his last 10.2 innings. Look for him to return to the team as soon as possible.
